    About the adventure

    Welcome to the Lost Mine of Phandelver. This is an introductory module to DnD, but it can be interesting for experienced players as well. The setting is in the Forgotten Realms and you just wanted to do a simple job. Escort a caravan, get paid, and then live a happy life. That was the plan, but nothing goes as expected. What happens? That is completely up to you. There are many different options for you to chose from, and the adventure is completely customizable for each party. So come, play, and have fun with your own unique story!

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Have a mic, a Roll20 account (free) and do your best to remember important rules when they are told. You will not need to bring a pre-made character sheet or have your own dice. Roll20 provides it all, so just be ready to play and learn as you go.

    What I provide

    The module for Mine of Phandelver will provide maps, tokens, and your character can have their own special token as well.

    Gameplay details

    We will be using the Mine of Phandelver module. The maps are done by professionals, so it will look pretty. All you need is a desire to play since there are pre-made characters, but if you have a character concept ready at the start of the session we can take time to quickly make your character. You will be as stated starting out on a simple job that doesn't end as any sane person would wish. Beyond this, it is up to you. There is a lot of lore in the world to discover and many monsters to slay. If you want to somehow befriend creatures, you might pull it off or end up fighting everyone and everything. The choice is as it should always be, up to you.

      How will character creation work

      Characters will be level 1 and you can either make a character in game (if you have a character concept) or chose from a list of pre-generated characters.
